Although the country is a landlocked country located much of the southwestern border along Lake Tanganyika.

The climate is tropical, but moderated by hills. Average temperatures range from approximately. 23 ° C along Lake Tanganyika to 20 ° C on plateaus and about. 16 ° C on the highest mountain slopes.

There are two rainy seasons, the longest from February to May.

Burundi is one of the ten poorest countries in the world. The country has a low gross domestic product largely due to civil wars, poor educational opportunities and impacts of HIV / AIDS. Burundi is densely populated and experiencing great exodus. Cobalt and copper are among the country's natural resources, and the main export products are coffee and sugar.
